Coastal communities building resilience to climate change

21/06/2011

The Australian Government will invest $4.5 million to help demonstrate how coastal communities can adapt to the unavoidable impacts of climate change. Thirteen successful projects have been offered funding.

View the list of successful projects.

The investment will support partnerships with local governments, infrastructure operators and major utilities to explore how planning and investment decisions need to recognise the increasing impacts of climate change over time, particularly for long-lived assets.
